We are grateful for your support of our artists – leave a nice comment supporting our artists and share this post to spread the word about our charity event! 


The card I’m sharing over on my instagram for this hop features the large sunflower cluster for a 5×7 card. I thought this was a gorgeous image and wanted to also feature the Sketchmarkers. Admittedly, I didn’t have any of these markers prior to the hop but from using them, I really like them and think they are comparable to copic markers. They are alcohol markers with a chisel and brush tip. The brush tip was nice and worked really well for flicking and coloring.

For this particular card, my coloring is quite simple as I wanted to showcase the fact that you don’t need a ton of markers to color up an image. In this card, I used a total of 5 markers along with a white pen. For the sunflowers, I just flicked the one color on the top and bottom of the petals. For the middle, I dotted two colors to create some dimension.

Because I’m using white space to create that dimension on the flowers, I wanted to create a dark background and just inked up the entire black using a black marker and then dotted on stars with a white pen. It’s a cool effect to create when you really want something to pop!

Remember to stop by instagram or tiktok for a chance to win the Sketchmarker Brush set! And heres a quick video of how I colored this and put it together.

Rainbow Flowers

Welcome to the weekend crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing a card featuring the Ellen Hutson‘s new release stamp sets named, Pressing Thoughts. It’s a very simple floral set but perfect for lots of occasions. I shared a previous card that used the large floral as the main feature on the card (blog post for that card here).

Today, I decided to use the stamp set in another way and used the smaller florals images. I stamped a bunch of the smaller images from the Ellen Hutson’s Pressing Thoughts stamp set using Versamark ink along with Hero Arts’ White Embossing powder. I also used the corresponding dies to cut them out and then colored them up using a variety of distress inks.

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible.

For the background, I chose to use a piece of white cardstock and cut out a circle using Hero Arts’ Infinity Circles. Using the circle cut out, I arranged the floral images to create a rainbow wreath. I used the same distress inks to ink up a strip of all the colors and trimmed it down to a quarter of an inch and placed in on the top and the bottom of the card.

I placed the rainbow wreath on top of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment in the middle of the circle. I also decided to add a few of the Trinity Stamps’ Soapy Bubbles embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Pressing Thoughts

Happy Friday everyone! TGIF! I’m sharing a card featuring one of Ellen Hutson‘s new release stamp sets named, Pressing Thoughts. It’s a very simple floral set but perfect for lots of occasions.

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible. 

I stamped images from the Ellen Hutson’s Pressing Thoughts stamp set using Ink on 3’s Fadeout ink. Then I colored them up using copic markers. Using the corresponding dies, I cut this out and set it aside.

For the background, I used wanted to tie in the same purple colors so I die cut some stripes of white cardstock using Mama Elephant’s Quick Stripes and used the same copic markers to color them up. I decided I wanted some contrast so I cut down a strip of kraft cardstock and added some dimension by added distress inks around the corners in Walnut Stain. For the sentiment, I stamped it directly on the kraft cardstock and one of the purple strips.

To finish off this card, I added a couple of embellishments from Trinity Stamps called Midnight Ball that filled up the space on the kraft cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Hot Mess Lady

Hi everyone! I’ve been eyeing Essential by Ellen’s Leading Ladies stamp sets for years almost but I never pulled the trigger to buy them because I didn’t know which ones to choose. I finally picked out a few and I’m using Hot Mess Lady for today’s cards.

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible.

I stamped images from the Hot Mess Lady stamp set using Fadeout Ink. Then I colored them up using a variety of copic markers. I really just wanted to sit down and color to de-stress. For me, no line coloring is a lot of fun and always a challenge — it helps me clear my mind. Once I finish coloring my items, I ended up fussy cutting the images.

For both cards, I’m using Honey Bee Stamps’ A2 Thin Frames to help frame my little scenes.

CARD 1:
I used the Honey Bee Stamps’ A2 Thin Frames by tilting two of them to frame in the Hot Mess Lady. For the edges of this card panel, I used Salty Ocean distress ink to add some color for interest. I also colored up a table for all her items.

CARD 2:
This one pretty much sums up all my plans I had for the year. I’m a planner so I had all these trips planned out and well, life happens. I added 2020 to the calendar. I also needed a trash can for one of my card ideas, so I stamped the one in Gerda Steiner’s Sneaky Raccoons set and only colored the portion I needed. With Fadeout Ink, I don’t need to mask since the ink is so light anyway, which is also what I did with the calendar. For the sentiment, I used Ink Road’s The One with All the Stamps. Anyone know which Friends’ episode this quote is from? I thought it was perfect.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
